Hello, I have existing 'Releases' within Jira. If I disable the feature 'Releases', does it delete the already existing release data? Is there a retention period, or can I re-enabled 'releases' in 6 months time and all the previous releases will be visible?
Thank you for reaching out.
The toggle to turn on/off the Releases feature on a project (Under project settings > Features) is just a visual restriction option.
That being said, all your created versions and linked issues will remain intact if you turn off the feature, and will be properly displayed when you turn it on again as it was before.
Let us know if you have any questions.
